Football fans can now keep their eye on the ball through a pair of designer glasses from their own team.
SelectSpecs.com and SelectSpecs Opticians in Westgate-on-Sea, Kent are now looking out for our football mad customers (or soccer supporters if you’re from across the pond) by stocking officially licensed glasses and sunglasses for the top UK Premier League teams.
When it comes to football merchandise almost everything has been branded but this is the first time supporters have been able to buy designer prescription glasses and sunglasses from Premier League teams.
SelectSpecs Opticians in Westgate-on-Sea is one of the first opticians in the country to stock the prescription spectacles, as well listing them on our website for those who can’t make it to our store.
The glasses look set to be a winner with fans and particularly children who may be nervous about wearing glasses because they don’t think they are “cool”.
At SelectSpecs, we think these glasses are so cool, that children will be begging their parents for a pair of glasses from their favourite team, even if they don’t need to wear glasses at all… Well, at least there are kid’s sunglasses too, and at very reasonable prices (around £15).
The fashionable frames come in six styles – four for adults and two for children. There is a choice of unisex designs so female fans can get in on the action too.
The prescription frames have spring hinges and are made to the highest standards. They come with a hard case and micro-fibre cloth, which are also branded with your team’s name and stamp. They are made by Hull-based company Fan Frames.
Fan Frames is the official supplier of spectacle frames and sunglasses for the following football clubs: –
- Manchester United
- Manchester City
- Liverpool FC
- Everton FC
- Chelsea FC
- Arsenal FC
- Newcastle United
- Nottingham Forest
- Hull City AFC
- Glasgow Rangers FC
- Celtic FC
No doubt we will be seeing more football clubs added to this list over time.
Paul Gibson, director of Fan Frames, said: “Everyone we have spoken to loves the business concept and is amazed it has never been done before. It’s a simple idea and we expect it to be a winner with fans.”
